This course is designed to meet the exact but changing needs of employers in the early years sector. So you’ll gain the valuable skills you need to progress within childhood education and care.
You’ll study a broad range of topics. First year modules cover health and wellbeing, play and learning, and inclusion and diversity. This course includes an optional Early Years Educator (EYE) pathway too.2
Build practical skills while you learn, carrying out part of your training in your own workplace. You could access our on-campus simulated early years learning environment. And study for accredited Forest School certification, too. This prepares you to work outside with children, taking into account a range of extra needs, and gives you a valuable extra qualification.
You'll develop essential skills and attributes that employers in the sector value while gaining experience in an academic background. And gain the expertise and knowledge to apply for a top-up qualification with Graduate Practitioner Status, or other professional education route.
